(updated 10/27) the next 2 photos my cousin sent to me, as yard with the witches in the beach chairs had more Halloween decorations added.
many of the gravestones in the photo below look like the grave markers in the old cemetery's in our area.
I'm so glad I decided to take a long weekend getaway on Cape Cod. I headed to the Cape on Friday morning to stay with my cousin in West Yarmouth. The weather couldn't have been more perfect the whole weekend. There was no wind, and it was sunny with temps in the 60's. We did no crafting this time, as we both needed a break just to relax. Cheryl is her mother's caregiver 24/7, but her mom had recently been in the hospital and then sent to rehab to gain her strength back. Cheryl and I had plans to go to Maine, but that didn't work out for us, but maybe next week we will get to Maine.
Mostly Cheryl and I poked around in thrift shops, as I was looking for vintage ribbons and lace or whatever caught my eye. We also hit lots of little gift shops, ate out and meandered thru the Cape towns looking for yards decorated for Halloween. I also picked up a few Christmas gifts.
I have lots of photos to share. I hope you will like them.
The following photos were taken in a yard in Wellfleet. What an awesome display and I can imagine the many, many hours of hard work getting it all set up. Click on the photos to enlarge.

Did you like these displays? I thought they were all well done. I didn't find as many decorated yards as in the past, but I liked what I found.
